Is Poppy's passive applied before or after armor/magic reduction?

and is this math correct if i have 1000 hp and take 100 damage with 25 armor. Do i take:
a) 100/2*.75= 37 damage?
or
b) 100*.75(passive does not proc)= 75 damage.
or
c) none of the above? If C please explain

I believe Poppy's passive is calculated after all other damage reduction effects, including armor, have been calculated. If the damage she WOULD take would be greater than the threshold, reduce it by 30%.

so does that mean you should value dodge more?

Yes. Ironically, the Tankier you build Poppy the less often her passive kicks in and helps her tank. If you want to build her tanky, you are better off stacking effects that stop attacks entirely (dodge, Banshee's Veil) and effects that give regeneration than you are HP/Armor/MR.
